Real Sex, Nina Hartley, and the Googlebot

Google’s search algorithms would seem to have undergone another fairly major revision, at least around sexuality. What makes me say that? In the last month, people finding their way to ComstockFilms.com on the search [real sex] have fallen by about 80%, while people finding their way to ComstockFilms.com on the search [nina hartley] have risen by about ten-fold. Yesterday we actually got more visitors looking for Nina Hartley than we are looking for real sex, which probably isn’t good for Nina, Comstock Films, web-searchers, or Google for that matter.

I suspect this has something to do with the Googlebot trying to distinguish between spamblogs and original content, but who can know for sure?

The good news is that this hasn’t had nearly the same effect on us that the Great Google Disaster of 2006 did. Since last year we’ve taken steps to make sure our fortunes aren’t so dependent on the visisitude of inscrutable Googlebot.
